When trying to decide where to dock a boat, probably the most important
consideration is the protection afforded during times of nasty weather.
Leaming's is a small marina tucked away in an ultra-protected lagoon in
Waretown. Despite its location away from the open waters of Barnegat Bay, it's only a three- or four-minute voyage out of the lagoon to open water.

A unique feature of Leaming's Marina is its affiliation with  Lagoon View Yacht Club which is located right on the premises. While all yacht club members do not have a slip here, many do.  Lagoon View Yacht Club is affiliated with other boating clubs across  the country and sponsors charitable activities both in Waretown and at other sites on the eastern seaboard. Lagoon View Yacht Club is a member club of Yachting Club of America; they are listed in The Register of American Yacht Clubs.

Tom Leaming has been operating the marina for 25 years and can accommodate 76 boats. As a member of the LVYC Board of Directors and the 2006 President  of the New Jersey Marine Trades Association, he is always up on current trends and movements in the boating industry. The total floating dock marina can handle boats up to 26 feet, and about 85% of the boats here are power boats with the rest sailboats.

AMENITIES: The marina is in the midst of a well established residential area, and many of these residents berth their boats at Leaming's. There's a ship store right on the premises that sells an assortment of marine supplies as well as a line of bait and tackle special for the types of fishing done in the area. Although there is no restaurant on the site, there are two very nice eating places within walking distance.

All of the slips are new (2008) floating docks, so access for boaters to their craft is easy. All slips come equipped with both water and electric. Television and telephone are available on request. The marina has a reputation as a family type, and many boaters will spend weekends and short vacations aboard their boats. There are clean restrooms with showers conveniently located for the use of
boat owners and their guests. A brand new pumpout station was recently constructed.

The marina is situated at the end of the lagoon in a sort of horseshoe shape. This means that there is not only plenty of parking, but all boat owners are able to park right at the stern of the their boat. This makes loading and unloading gear a snap. Picnic tables are available for family use.

SERVICES: Leaming's Marina bills itself as a full service marina, and that is what it is. A nine ton travel lift provides a means to put boats in and out of the water. Once a boat is out of the water, Leaming's Marina provides a hauling service to both deliver and pick up boats. Factory authorized service is available from mechanics who are certified in Merc-Cruiser, E-Tec, Mercury, and Yamaha. Other work such as electronic installations and repair, and canvas work is available on request. Leaming has arrangements made to provide timely service in these areas for his customers. Leaming's is also a good place to buy a decent used boat. Tom Leaming has acquired a name for his marina as a reputable place to both buy and sell used boats. The gas dock pumps 89 octane premium gas.

TRANSIENT SERVICES: There are a few slips available for short term usage. The charge is a very reasonable $25 nightly. Reciprocal Yacht Club members receive a discounted rate.

RECREATION: As mentioned earlier,  Lagoon View Yacht Club maintains its home base here and conducts many of its activities here. The club in participation with Leaming's holds several social events during the season.

Once boats leave the dock, there is a multitude of activities available. This area of Barnegat Bay is very wide and provides ample room for cruising for both power and sail. For fishermen and crabbers, the waters of Barnegat Bay and those just inside Barnegat Inlet are renowned for their rich resources. Barnegat Inlet and its entrance to the Atlantic Ocean is just a short 20 minutes across the bay.

GETTING THERE: Coming by car, the marina is reached by taking Barnegat Beach Drive off Route 9 just across the street from the Lighthouse Tavern. Go about 1/2  mile and turn right on Lagoon View Road.  Leaming's Marina will be on the left at the end of the lagoon. If coming by boat, head due west from marker 42 and enter the wide deep access channel. Once through the entrance, bear left and then go down the lagoon.
